Article summary

Most foods, recipes, and meals in our database include Keto grades, which can help you to determine if a food fits into a Keto or low carb lifestyle. Keto grades include the following:

  • Friendly (green)
  • Limit (yellow)
  • Strictly Limit (red)
  • Avoid (red)
Note: Keto grades are still in beta. We calculate the grade using a proprietary formula based primarily on the carbohydrates, fiber, sugar, and glycemic load for a single (default) serving of a food or recipe.

When you look for foods, recipes, and meals, the grades appear in the description when you apply any of our low-carb diet types in the Macros Calculator

  • Keto
  • Low Carb
  • High Fat
  • High Protein Keto
  • No carb
  • Low Carb Moderate Fat

This setting is not enabled if you select any of the following diet types in the Macros Calculator.

  • Moderate Carbs Fat
  • Even split
  • Zone
  • High Protein
  • High Carb Low Fat
  • Custom
